Shirin in Love

Synopsis: Love has no borders and therein lies the premise of the charming, new Iranian-American romantic comedy "Shirin in Love." Nazanin Boniadi plays Shirin, an absent-minded, young Iranian-American living in "Tehrangeles" (the large Iranian community in Los Angeles) with her overbearing mother and empathetic father. Despite being engaged for years to a successful Iranian plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Shirin finds herself breaking loyalty and tradition when she falls in love with a mysterious young man who lives in a lighthouse in northern California. As her secret unravels and cultures clash, Shirin discovers what it ultimately means to be true to herself.

( police siren blaring )

Good morning, Marvin.

Good morning, and it's

Officer Henderson, Miss.

License and registration,



I know it's here.


Uh, did you lose your license

and registration again, Shirin?

No, no, no.

It's in my purse.

It's got to be here somewhere.

Was I speeding again?

Oh, no. No, you weren't

speeding, not this time.

- But let me ask you a question.

- Uh-huh.

Does that big red sign mean

anything to you back there?

Now look, we don't want any

accidents out here, do we?

I forgot to stop again,

didn't I?


I'm sorry.

How's the writing going?

Well, I'm still gonna

write you this ticket.

I know.

It's just... well, the

writing's so...

Go on.

Different, you know?

Definitely has potential.


I gave you the ninth draft.

I know that.

It's really, you know, raw.

You know, fresh is what I mean.

But, I thought we agreed that

Harry can't just kill his wife

because he's unhappy.

Well, maybe Harry... he

does need to do something.

You know what?

Maybe he kills her

then he tries to kill himself,

but through some way

he survives somehow.

Or maybe he just lets her go.

Yeah. Maybe he

just lets her go.

That'd be... maybe

he just lets her go.

Maybe he just lets her...

get the hell out of here.

( laughs )

( music )

- Hi Janet!

- Hi.


...have until tonight.

Then, you'll be

hearing from my lawyers.

I've read all the books.

You've read them all

in one week?


And I wrote a review

on each of them,

although only one

was worth reading.

The rest were the usual fluff.

You say that like it's

a bad thing.

In The Storm is the

new Rachel Harson novel.

I'm sure it'll be a best

seller too, but I don't get it.

Have some kabob.

You've lost weight.

( speaking foreign language )

I have an offer for you.

We'll have the wedding here,

a big wedding, a

beautiful wedding.

In return, you will do a

big feature on Ms. Harson.

And we'll put it on the

cover of the online issue

as well as three pages

in the print publication.


You've been asking to

write feature stories.

Here's your chance.

Rachel Harson, The Real Story.

Darling, go and interview her.

Write classy stuff, and I

promise we won't change a word.

You know she doesn't

give interviews.

She hasn't met my daughter.



My dress!


( music )

Oh, shoot!


Is that beer coming?


Thank you.

Hey, Vicky, it's me.

Um, I have an emergency.

No, not another fire.

Um, do you have any beer?

( music )

Hello boys.


Hi Vicky.

( speaking foreign language )

Who is this blondie?

Take it easy, man.

That's a patient.

She's a patient?

Yeah. I wouldn't mind

giving her a filling, huh?

I would love to adjust

her tailbone.

Chick, chick, chick, pow.

You're not even a doctor.

You're a chiropractor.

That's a glorified masseuse.

I make people walk

with beautiful forms.

What do you do?

Fill up their phenomenals?

Thank you so much.

Of course.

Oh, how romantic.

After all these years,

Mike still sends you flowers.

American men never do that.


Thanks, beautiful.

Ba ba!

Tastes so good!


( laughing )

Mike is so adorable.

He did such a

great job on these.

You should feel them.

- Oh, oh. No. I'm good.

- Are you sure?

- Yeah.

- Okay. Okay.

The tall one... the other

doctor... is he married?


He's not married.

I'm Iranian. I got a chandelier

in my car hanging,

just chandelier just hanging.

Tone it down, man. You're

a little creepy right now.
